minutes. >> thank you, orval, and senator for joining us today for our conversation about ian bremmer's wonderful new book. this book is about the g-0 world. he is a fabulous political scientist who really speaks to the big major changes underway in the world today, getting beyond the ivory tower. he has been making some money, which come as a fellow political scientist, i think this is a great tribute, but it also shows how politics and government are really driving so much of the global economy, so that the economists knowledge is really not sufficient, even for investors, as well as ordinary citizens to understand where we are going. this book is very interesting, we have this new concept of the g-0 world. it is really about the problem of global cooperation. it is not so much a book about the competition among nations. it is about the kind of leadership in the world today. i wanted to start off they may be telling us you really think that the united states has been an effective leader up until now, and that it is really -- it is really a loss of american leadership that this book
through these difficult times. when the company urged -- merge with u.s. airways in 2005, parker took a new set of challenges on as the ceo of the newly restructured legacy alive. u.s. airways is a company built on mergers and acquisitions, which is a fitting for dug parker, the industry's main advocate for consolidation. he has argued time and again the airlines can be more flexible, more capable, and more valuable to travelers if they join forces . the airlines that did so are now operating successfully. mr. parker believes the combining u.s. airways and american airlines would create a more competitive industry and a more sustainable airline. so far his plan has received widespread support, including and, perhaps, surprisingly from the workers and american airlines and the union. he is here today to tell us more about the merger and where it sits and to his broader vision for the industry as a whole. ladies and gentlemen, please join me in welcoming dug parker to the national press club.

who still don't have those benefits. but for those of us who are lucky right now, we are living 10 years, 20 years more than our ancestors did. now the question is can you study aging head-on, and can you do something about the deterioration of the 50s, 60s, 70s and on up? can we do anything about that that would give us another 20 or 30 or 40 years or more? by story's main character, aubrey de grey, rights to argue that if we can only extend life a little faster than we do now, medicine will keep advancing. faster than our own deterioration, and will essentially live forever. >> host: the century between the 20th and the, i'm sorry, the 19th and 20th century. what was the life expectancy? forty years? >> guest: turn of the 20th century i think it was 47 or 48 years. average life expectancy in the u.s. now we are up to about the 80s. an anonymous gain in just the last century. >> host: how do we get to 1000?

ten years when the u.s. first after september 11th invaded afghanistan. i don't know, some of you are too young to remember, but others of us might remember looking at our tv screens and seeing the pictures of these very fancy, new weapons that we had. this idea that we know had these precision weapons that would only target the people that we wanted to get and would not result in collateral damage. and it was almost a way to say to people, calmed down, don't be worried. we will be killing innocent people. so, i was worried because i don't have as sense that the latest and greatest new weapon is going to protect innocent people and went to afghanistan three weeks after the invasion with several other colleagues. it was before we even got into afghanistan on the border of pakistan that we found already people who would be considered collateral damage. the first young woman i met is somebody who sticks with me because she looked like my daughter. she was 13 years old. my daughter at that time was 13 years old. i felt an affinity with her and asked her if i could learn about her stor

steps that we believe can protect privacy as use of drones increase in the sky. first congress should pass targetedded legislation initial step would be the passage of the bill to limit drone surveillance in the united states in cases where a warrant has been not obtained. however a fully address the invasive nature of drones new legislation must prohibit nonspecific untargetted drone surveillance, limit the use of drone surveillance data collected, transmitted, stored or shared and require knows notice of the politician. the law should provide for independent. second should expressly require drone operators including dh sb and the implement regulation subject to public notice and comments that address the privacy implication. and finally, i think congress should clarify the circumstance in which they purchased by them in the pursuit of the mission may be deployed for other purposes. the failure to make clear the circumstance on federal and state agencies may deploy dproans for aerial surveillance has raised significant concerns about the program. once again, i thank you for the oppor

, in some ways, it is not a problem. the ambush protected vehicle that they use in iraq and afghanistan, it was something that the hill prioritize because people were getting blown up by ied's. there is a proper role for congress exercising decision-making and imposing some things on executive office and institutions. how to deal with the rest? management, either. there is not a golden bullet that is going to resolve this problem permanently. something that someone will have to wrestle with on a case-by-case basis. at least my opinion is going to be that you have to hope that the governors i have already outlined are sufficient. but most of those things don't come into the budget. >> we should probably clarify that, you know, when people present in arguments, pros and cons, the majority responds favorably to both. so it is not that most people are carrying around a very discrete human of i think defense should be cut and i am looking for signs that this candidate is for organs that. it is not that articulated. it is more because they say oh, yeah, that's true, oh, okay, now have to make
they do. energy and water which used to be one of the most important subcommittees, most popular, i should say in addition to being important, subcommittees in this body, i was fortunate to serve on that subcommittee for more than a quarter of a century under a great -- under great leaders, domenici, bennett johnson, domenici and i switched back and forth. but the house sent us over here an appropriation bill that has more than 30 riders directed toward e.p.a. type functions alone. i mean they're not serious about doing sage. they're serious about satisfying their tea party and the ridiculous messages they're trying to send. so -- and i would also say one of the problems problems we have we have to fight to get to anything, any legislation. we have to fight to get that done. as you know, we've wasted -- i said weeks earlier. months. trying to get legislation on the floor. so appropriation bills, i wanted to get these done, i'm an appropriator but it's been with the actions of the house unrealistic. mr. mcconnell: what we just heard, madam president, it's not the senate's house, it's the ho

have their assets and family farmers don't have extra cash on hand to pay the death tax. instead use of land or take on additional debt in order to pay these higher taxes. that is exactly what we don't want to see happen in this country. i don't believe the president's proposal which is the $3.5 million exemption is adequate but it is much better than what's democrat -- senate democrats have proposed. let me summarize. tomorrow we will vote on a proposal to raise taxes when americans are hurting and the economy is fragile. this proposal will impose higher taxes of $50 billion on successful small business owners and families. it will hurt the economy reducing economic growth and job creation at the same time it lowers wages for hard working american families. it will impose a new debt tax including $31 billion on 43,100 family -- and also vote i hope on the alternative plan to keep tax rates where they are to prevent a tax increase on any american. in addition to keeping tax rates where they are the proposal provides instructions to finance committee to report fundamental tax reform l
